This Study is the effect of the inclusive institution on a nation`s economic development. Therefore, we focused on the gaming industry as an index that can drive the economic growth in the future. The reason to compare the game institution in South Korea and Germany is that both countries began to develop the game by the State, but the game institution in South Korea and Germany at the present time are sharply opposed, because the institutions can focus on the main points that are experiencing this difference. The results of this study, first, open/closed network in institutionalized aspect affects the social status of the game. This second, game workers in the legal institution has been classified as artists in Germany, as addicts in South Korea. And, Germany also has incentives to creators protected profits reinvested in the gaming industry, Korea leads to punitive exploitation is being transferred to the group for addiction treatment that revenue. Third, this exclusive and inclusive institutional system could affect the stable growth of the game market. As a result, South Korea`s state institutions will notice that you get a result away from opportunities for economic development due to the loss of inclusiveness.
